Flying enables birds to escape predators, look for food, and migrate. As an avid birder, Mr. Gandy was fascinated by bird flight, especially the phenomenon of bird murmurations. A murmuration is a flock of hundreds or thousands of birds flying in a whirling, twisting, morphing pattern. Within a murmuration, flight information is somehow instantly communicated, allowing the flock to respond as one. Murmurations confuse predators and also attract other birds to roost together at night for added safety.
The “Bird Flight” exhibit was funded by the family of Mr. B. E. Gandy.
